New Ways to Give: Text, App, Card, or Apple Pay


The ushers are moving down the aisle with the offering plates, and you forgot your checkbook.  Or you don’t have a pen.  Any cash?  Only a handful a change and a wadded up dollar bill.  We now offer new ways to give:

Text giving: Text COTC and the numerical amount you wish to give (ex. COTC $100) to 73256.  The first time you text you will have to set up your credit card info but after that you’ll just have to hit accept.  You’ll get both a text and email receipt.  Your donation will go straight to the annual fund.

Giving through the Church Life app: You can use the Church Life app to give to any of our funds (annual, building, capital, memorial, or designated).  The Church Life app also features the church calendar and the parish directory, with driving instructions to listed addresses.  Download the app at the app store—it’s called ACS Church Life.  Note—you need to be registered with COTC Connect to use the app.  As a reminder, COTC Connect is where you can set up automatic payments, check your giving statements, access the directory and calendar, and register and pay for events.  Click on COTC Connect on the homepage at

With a credit card, debit card, or Apple Pay at the Welcome Center: Someone at the reception desk is happy to take your card or your cell phone payment interface for any amount on a Sunday morning or weekday.

And of course there is always a Check, using the envelope in the pews if you like or Cash, using an envelope if you would like donor credit on your COTC account.
